Monthly cement emissions in China 2019 & 2020

In the first three months of 2020, emission levels from the cement industry in China were noticeably lower than during the same period in 2019. In March, emissions amounted to 54 million metric tons of CO2, compared with 65 million metric tons of CO2 in the same month the previous year. In the first few months of 2020, China, like many nations, was under strict lockdown due to the outbreak of COVID-19, which in turn affected many industries. Although levels began lower than the previous year, they started to increase as lockdown measures loosened. There was a dramatic surge in May, with levels of CO2 surpassing those recorded in May 2019.
